If only mids came retail like this... little update to my Jordan 1 Mid “Banned” custom. I’m very happy with how they came out.

Looks great! 💯 where’d you get the tongue tags? If you don’t mind.

As a Canadian I have to say no to that price plus shipping 😂


ericisshort

Still cheaper than the difference between mids and highs


Stg_885rk

Understandable. Another cheaper option would be to find a beat pair at a local thrift store for cheap and source them for the tags. I’ve not been to Canada but I assume you have thrift stores. Or Craigslist.

Dang these look even better. High time ppl(hypebeasts) stop shitting on mids.


Stg_885rk

Thank you! I agree! I like them.

Hey Everyone! I recently started a YouTube channel that talks about these! Take a look! Link: [https://youtu.be/a6oeqixXFMA](https://youtu.be/a6oeqixXFMA)

Looks fire. Such a steal for the banned cw


Stg_885rk

Thank you! Yeah as you can prob tell the Bred/Banned 1’s are my favorite shoe. But I can’t justify paying the resell prices, so I created my own for a fraction of the price.


sneakerNoObie

Honestly on feet mids are quite hard to tell- really liked ur idea of switching the tag!


Stg_885rk

Exactly. I’ve only ever received compliments when I wear mine. I feel like the mid hate is only online. I love my Hi’s don’t get my wrong, but there are some dope mid colorways that shouldn’t be discounted just bc they’re mids. Thanks again!

I like it


Stg_885rk

Thank you!

These are dope .! Just like the other guy I wanna know where u got the tongue tag ? 🤔


ericisshort

Same guy is on etsy as kindnessoverkill. If he doesn't have a tag you want, hit him up cuz he was pretty responsive to me and gave me a heads up when he restocked.


Stg_885rk

Yeah he’s great to do business with. Superb customer service.

Nasty 🔥

Thank you!

Only tell is that the tag sewing doesn't go all the way across the tongue. Why did you only sew it across the tag?


Stg_885rk

You’re right. It’s because the tongue curves so it’s difficult to sew a straight line all the way across using a sewing machine. I’m sure I could get it right if I really took my time, but I took the lazy way out. Plus, I’m not necessarily trying to pass them off as hi’s. They’re clearly mids and I have a hi pair. Also, no one is looking that close when I am wearing them on foot. I may go back and sew across but for now I’m happy with the way they are.


ericisshort

It isn't at all difficult to get it straight. I just did this to [two pairs of mids](https://i.imgur.com/p5hhnza.jpg) this weekend, and I got all four tongues on the first try. While researching, I noticed a couple of youtubers doing it the same as you, but the tag without the framing line looked off to me so I decided to give it a try going all the way across. Drawing a line in pencil across with a ruler gave me a good guide to keep it straight.


Stg_885rk

Oh ok. Yeah yours look good. I like what you did to your Royals. I watched several YT videos and some did it the way I did it and some did it the way I did it. My fear was making a crooked line and having to keep re-doing it. That’s a good tip to draw a line to follow. It doesn’t necessarily look off to me the way I did it, but maybe I’ll try to add the line straight across eventually. I think it’s just a personal preference. If you’re happy with yours then I think that’s what matters.


ericisshort

Thanks. I'm happy with those as is. The white pair aren't done yet but well on their way.


Yonko-007

So who’s highs are those next to the Mids? Great job on the mid custom. Really impressive that’s gonna be my next project


Stg_885rk

Haha thanks man! I really appreciate it. Good luck with yours!


Yonko-007

Your welcome. What I meant to say was arn’t those the real deal highs next to them?


Stg_885rk

Ha. Yeah they’re hi’s and they’re actually customs also done by me. Here’s my [post ](https://www.reddit.com/r/Sneakers/comments/lumr12/custom_jordan_unc_to_chi_bred_1s_painted_by_me/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)

Damn bro those turned out great too. Any tips on the Jordan wings logo? Is there any way of telling they were once uncs now?


Stg_885rk

Thank you! Sorry for the late reply. I purchased a wing stencil online which helped, but wasn’t a perfect fit, so I had to free hand the rest of it. I used a fine tipped brush and toothpick for the detail. The only tell from the 2016 Bred’s is the size of the wings logo. Because the Unc to Chi’s are women’s, the logo is slightly smaller. But you can’t tell that on foot. The leather is also slightly different but personally I think these have better leather. I watched a ton of tutorial videos on YouTube on how to do this custom, so I highly recommend doing that. This was the best [one](https://youtu.be/KnV3EfrNQHs) imo. If you have any other questions just lmk.
